|I never did this, the Big A challenge. But I thought about it.|
So, as for my weight loss, I am pretty proud. I am three months and one week postpartum and I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight. Or at least what I think my pre-pregnancy weight was (I am not really sure what it was because I absolutely hate getting on the scale). But all of my clothes fit. And some are even too big. As you may remember, when I had to weigh during pregnancy at my appointments, I would do it backwards. I didn't want to know how much I was gaining. Because I was pretty confident I was going to gain over the recommended 25-35 pounds, so why upset myself. Its not like I could go on a diet.
|I wish they would pay me.|
|I am a believer.|
Along with my weight loss, my hair loss has been going pretty well too. How many of you knew that most woman experience hair loss after they give birth? Well, it usually occurs about 3 or 5 months postpartum. And when it happens, it gets really scary really fast. I am so afraid I am going to have bald patches. I am using special shampoo that I bought at Sally's and taking Biotin, a hair and nail growth supplement. But apparently this will likely continue until September. It can last longer for women who are breastfeeding, but I'm not, so hopefully it ends soon. And while it really stinks to be losing my hair, it is totally worth it. I'll trade long flowing locks any day for the chance to be Susan's mom.
|Pretty soon, Susan and I will match.|
